Independence Plaza

Independence Plaza
703 Atlantic Avenue, Alameda

A Residential Senior Complex for people age 62 and older (50 and older if permanently disabled). Certain units are for low-income only.

Built in 1990, Independence Plaza is a 186-unit secure senior complex spread out over five buildings at Atlantic and Constitution Avenues. Surrounded by busy streets on 3 sides, it is quite peaceful once you enter its gates. The buildings and grounds include an on-site resident manager, a community room with kitchen, two well-maintained courtyards that includes water features, a community barbecue in the main courtyard, plenty of natural lighting, gated entry way and parking lots with assigned parking, and a dedicated loading zone for Paratransit or other pick-ups. Each unit has a patio or balcony and is equipped with emergency pull cords to summon 911 help.

Independence Plaza receives a local tax increment subsidy. Under a regulatory agreement, there must be at least 65 affordable units including 29 very-low income units. 

In the past few years, Independence Plaza has undergone some functional and cosmetic changes:

  • New Drought Tolerant, Bay-Friendly landscaping was installed throughout the complex
  • New carpet was installed in the common areas of each building
  • The common areas of each building were all painted, including doorways and unit doors
  • New building entry doors were installed
